Port- Manos Unidas Group's story

Maria Beatriz, age 49, is married and has one child who is adult and independent. She is part of this group of eight women and three men who decided to get together and form this team, which has been of much help to them. With the loans, they have been able to improve their businesses.

She is a very hardworking woman who, due to the economic situation in her country, had to emigrate from Venezuela with her husband, to be able to get ahead. To earn income, she works selling Avon products (perfume, creams, costume jewelry, make-up, household utensils). She sells door-to-door. She has had the business for two years and now she is a "leader" which permits her to make greater profits.

She will use this new loan to buy perfume, costume jewelry, and make-up. Her dream is that the economic situation in Venezuela will improve and that she may return to her country.
